Hi, Wondered if anyone could help with my results. I went to GP who diagnosed Overactive Thyroid from a routine blood test. I have no symptoms so had a blood test done from medicheck and this is the result but i am clueless. Many thanks in advance!
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE *0.02 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.20
FREE THYROXINE *27.21 pmol/L 12.00 - 22.00 TOTAL
THYROXINE(T4) *163.4 nmol/L 59.00 - 154.00 FREE T3 4.35 pmol/L 3.10 - 6.80
Thyroid AntibodiesTHYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODY *208.400 IU/mL 0.00 - 115.00
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES*58.71 IU/mL 0.00 - 34.00
I also had this from the doctor at medichecks.
We note that you are taking this test to monitor your over-active thyroid.
You have low thyroid stimulating hormone with high levels of free and total thyroxine.
You have normal free T3.
Your thyroid peroxidase antibodies are elevated. This antibody is commonly associated with autoimmune thyroid disease. It is frequently seen in conditions such as Hashimoto’s disease (where the thyroid becomes underactive) but confusingly can also be seen in Grave’s disease (where the thyroid becomes overactive).
Your thyroglobulin antibodies are positive. This can be associated with autoimmune thyroid disease and in particular Hashimoto’s disease.
I recommend that you discuss these results further with your GP.
